    I would say if it works in HK, with the the EE firmware, than it's more likely that the dual-SIM variant is the issue, not the carrier branding.
    It would seem odd if his HK carrier required branding, but not their branded firmware, since that's what the whole carrier argument is, them certifying their firmware variant only (even though we all know this is a bunch of something ...).

    Definitely interested to hear how the "experiment" progresses, with the EE firmware in HK.
    If it works, I might try flashing the AT&T firmware onto my 950XL, I'm sort of about done with it anyway, in the event it became a brick, I'd be upset, but not like I would have been a few months back.

    I personally am really starting to think MS just didn't finish some linkage, for dual-SIM and WiFi calling, much like the VVM problem on dual-SIM, which took several months to get patched...

    Yeah, the DUAL-SIM thing is an issue, as well as it not being enabled on country variant firmwares on Single SIM versions.

    Even if it doesn't work with the HK carrier, it would be because the carrier has blocked un-supported(by them) phones from using VoLTE.

    I will report in a couple of weeks.

    1. There's VoLTE specified on the top notification panel
    2. Am able to make calls. This provider is LTE only, with no 3G fallback, so you can't make calls without VoLTE

    How? I raised this on MS answers, official answer was that VoLTE is only available on carrier branded handsets with specific carriers.

    The India page for 950XL doesn't claim VoLTE, so legally we can't do anything either.

    It is not the case of an advertised feature not working, it is a case of a feature which could have been easily implemented, not being implemented.

    We can ask nicely, but not sure who to approach.

    There are many in feedback hub for VoLTE. I have upvoted most. Would be great if people on this thread can search for VoLTE in feedback hub and up vote.

    Hi, I have been using lumia 950 for the last six months, and being such an expensive handset it is really disappointing that there is no option to enable VOLTE, which is easily possible even in cheap androids also. However as per the phones specification it does support VOLTE and HD calling.Please advise you have plans to enabled this feature with future updates.

    Thanks, I had an incredible stroke of luck and had a friend visiting from Hong Kong with an unlocked Single SIM 950XL. Popped the SIM into it, no VoLTE. Flashed EE UK firmware and voila! I could suddenly make calls.

    This proves beyond doubt that VoLTE is only enabled on carrier branded phones, and since there's no carrier branded dual-sim variant, we are basically screwed. This also proves that technically if they enable VoLTE on their handsets (like the iPhone and almost every Android handset out there), it would work, if the carrier allows your phone.

    My friend has eventually decided to stay on the EE UK firmware, and will confirm in a fortnight if the HK carriers also allow VoLTE on his phone with the new firmware.
    Hi,

    Good to know that you made Jio worked on your 950XL Single Sim. I got my 950XL Single Sim from Europe and right now am using in India. I tried Jio SIM only data work couldn't make call.

    Are you sure I will be able to make call if I flash the EE UK firmware ? And what are the thing I am going to miss when I flash that firmware and what are the gain ?

    Can you also please link me to the firmware ?

    I am not sure about anything. Maybe Jio has blocked the phone since then. The only way to find out is by trying.

    You aren't losing anything by flashing the EE UK firmware, although the process is a bit complicated. But rolling back to the original firmware is as easy as using the Windows device recovery tool.

    The firmware is available here, 059X5X1 is the one, I think.

    There's no carrier specific firmware for the 950XL DS anywhere. You can't flash single SIM firmware to dual SIM phone

    I am going to wait till Sep 5 and will get the info about portability. If they going to allow then I will flash that firmware and check whether it works or not. Hope it won't brick my device. I have already done manul flashing through cmd prompt.

    Will post the update here. Any idea for flashing 950xl DS ? Which carrier is having volte for that ?

    It seems like they have added all the phones which can be used for data alone. And they told they didn't verify at all. And I verified it. It doesn't work.

    Only carrier branded firmwares for the 950XL support VoLTE. No unlocked or country variant firmware supports VoLTE nor do the dual SIM versions, at this point.

    Yes, they can enable this for us, if they want, like they enabled 4G for 920/925 in India

    Considering that after they started handing out free SIMs, Jio is not much faster than Airtel, I am not that eager to switch anymore. I am currently on Vodafone, will switch to Airtel.
